Does "Intel MPI library" contain 'MPI Datatype Bool' ???

Does "Intel MPI library" contain 'MPI Datatype Bool' ???

Hi all.

I'm trying to use Intel MPI library (evaluation version) instead of LAM/MPI.
But I couldn't find Datatype BOOL in namespace MPI (c++ version) - MPI::BOOL.
(LAM/MPI contains that type)

Other types(char, byte, int, ...) exist in /include64/mpicxx.h, but there's no entry for bool.

How can I use that ?

Thanks.

JH

The standards support level specified for iMPI 4 (currently available to you as a beta) implies (I think) that this feature should be there. If not, you might file a bug report prior to the end of the beta test.

Hi JH,

As Tim points out, the BOOL data type is available with Intel MPI Library 4.0 Beta. You can register for and download the beta at www.intel.com/go/mpi.

Let us know if you hit any problems.

Thanks for your answer.
But there's problem on the link. I can't register for it.

Error page shows me 'critical system error.' :<

Hi JH,

I just registered for the beta without any problems. Can you make sure to delete your cookies and restart your browser?

Here is also a direct link to register for the Intel MPI Library 4.0 Beta for Linux*.
